Sisterspeak237 is an organization that amplifies the voices of women and minority groups in Cameroon.
We train and equip especially women with the skills and tools needed to tell their stories, and be more visible. We believe that communication is at the heart of social change.
SisterSpeak237 started in 2014 as a site, grew to a network and today it is a registered organization. We started in Bamenda and last year expanded our operations to Yaoundé.
Our mandate is to tell underreported stories, facilitate debates and discussions on issues affecting women in Cameroon, break the silence on taboo subjects and most importantly, contribute to sustainable development .
Our slogan is, if we don’t tell our stories who will?
We are currently upgrading our site and its under maintenance for now .It will be back up in the days ahead www.sisterspeak237.com
Some of our major past projects and programs include;
Annual National StoryTelling Competition since 2015.
Resource Center for women in Nkambe (North West Region) and training for female councillors
ACCESS 2019 – we staged the first ever fashion show for women with disabilities to promote acceptance and removal of barriers that the disabled face in the country. The fashion show gave greater visibility to the women and amplified their voices beyond Cameroon. The stories and features about Access
and the women who took part have trended in local and
international media .
